Question about 2001 Honda Accord
I think my speedometer cable is broken, how do I replace it?
How can i be sure it's broken?
Replace the Speedometer Cable
1 - Remove the old speedometer cable from your car, first take off the doghouse and then the engine cover.
2 - Remove the screw underneath the dashboard and take down the steering column. This will give you access to the back of your speedometer.
3 - Take off the drive shaft bolt, and "O" ring, insert the speedometer cable through the firewall.
4 - Remove speedometer cable securing clamps from the engine compartment and on the transmission.
5 - Release the drive shaft nut from the "right angle" adapter (The nut is attached to the back of the transfer case).
Installing the Speedometer Cable
1 - Place the square end of the speedometer cable into the adapter and secure the drive shaft nut.
2 - Pull the speedometer cable through the firewall to the rear of the speedometer.
3 - Secure the "O" ring and attach the speedometer cable to the rear of the speedometer/odometer. It should be engaged in the speedometer's square hold. Tighten the drive shaft nut again.
4 - Replace the clamps that will secure the speedometer cable onto the transmission and in the engine compartment. Replace the engine cover.
5 - Drive your car slowly to be sure your speedometer is working properly. If it is, replace the doghouse. If you're stilling having problems, take the car to your mechanic.
